Dolphins at Semakau, shared by Goh Peihao

Five or six dolphins were seen on 27 Mar (Sun) at around 8am off Pulau Semakau.
Peihao shared awesome photos and a video clip of these dolphins on facebook. And kindly agreed to let me post about it on this blog. Thanks Peihao!

Here's some screen captures I took off his video clip. Tail shot.
And nose.
Peihao says: "The video was shot from the jetty of Semakau and the pod of dolphins (about 5 to 6) were observed to be swimming around the channel and towards Pulau Jong."

This is awesome!! We were at the same location for our trip to Terumbu Semakau on 23 Mar (Wed) early in the morning. While we were out on the submerged reef, the crew of our boat said they also saw a dolphin! We were so disappointed to have missed seeing it.

So it was a delight to see Peihao's clip! Thanks Peihao!

If you spot a dolphin or other marine mammal, share it with The Singapore Wild Marine Mammal Survey (SWiMMS), a programme hoping to monitor the dolphin, porpoise and dugong populations in Singapore waters by establishing a volunteer network and reporting system. Email swimms@nus.edu.sg or fill in their on-line reporting form with as much information as you can.

SWiMMS is also now on facebook and has a map of sightings in our waters!
